Play4A does not collect personal information such as name, email address, mailing address or telephone number from Children using the site. We do however require Children to log into the site with a username (chosen by the teacher or parent), password and class code (assigned by Play4A). In order to track a child's progress when using the site and provide reports for teachers and parents, Play4A also stores input including how much time Children are spending on Play4A, what they are studying, and their progress on individual quizzes over time.
Play4A does collect personal information from teachers and parents who are creating an account with Play4A. This information includes title, first and last name, email address and mailing address. We will also ask you to choose a username and password. We may also collect personal information or retain communications in other instances such as when a teacher or parent contacts our Support Team. This information is kept confidential and will only be used for account verification and notifications to the email address listed on your account. We do not disclose, sell or give this information to any other companies or organizations without your consent.
In order to customize and personalize each user's experience, Play4A also stores input from the teacher or parent when they are customizing their Play4A classroom. This includes: lists of student usernames and avatars, questions and answers from custom made quizzes, teacher messages to students, class rewards created by the teacher and teacher avatars.
